It’s officially Fall, and we’re starting it off with a pumpkin bang. While sweet pumpkin treats always abound this time of year (think pumpkin spice lattes, pies, etc …), don’t forget that pumpkin is also an all-star in savory recipes like soups and stews. We know: we probably just gave you an excuse to do pumpkin all year long. We won’t tell a soul.

 

Prep: 20 minutes

Total: 30 minutes

Serves: 6

 

Ingredients:

1 medium-sized pumpkin or 4 cups

1 diced white onion

Peel the pumpkin, remove seeds, and dice into 1 inch cubes. Set aside.

In a large stock pot, heat 1 Tablespoon of avocado oil and add the onion. Saute for 3 minutes until the onion softens, then add the garlic cloves and saute until fragrant.
